BEHIND THE IMAGE WEDDING STORIES

A classic wedding image at this stage, but for anyone who hasn’t seen it, here’s a bit of background to it! So I was photographing Vanessa, the bride, and her relatives, getting the looking at me, classic family photo. Done in a couple of seconds as always. I simply stepped aside then to let some...

BEHIND THE IMAGE WEDDING STORIES

I was a Formula 1 photographer in another life (almost 20 years ago, feels like another life at this stage!!) so I’ve photographed a few champagne moments…Fernando Alonso, Michael Schumacher etc on the podium!

Parking underneath a tree canopy, the bride & her dad will pass through the little gate at the ancient wall almost in complete darkness before...

BEHIND THE IMAGE WEDDING STORIES

Photographing Irish weddings since 2007 means I’ve shot a lot of church weddings, and as most reading this will know, Irish church weddings typically last around 1 hour. This means after the processional and vows, I have a lot of time to watch, observe and see what documentary shots I can capture, all while being...
